Being able to prepare your own meals is a great way to save money, (some might even say a luxury) if you're a traveler that’s staying in a city for a while. Yet, many hotels never offer that option. Sure some may offer a complimentary breakfast, but doesn’t a warm plate of your grandmother’s recipe for cinnamon pancakes sound better than a bowl of cereal and cold sausage? Cooking at home allows me to eat healthy and save a ton of that I would be spending if I had been eating out. Not only that, but cooking also allows for entertaining guests.
